Mercy Mercy Me

What I really meant was that Marvin Gaye did not record those two songs as a medley; Robert Palmer did so, two decades later.

You are correct, the data has been fixed. Thanks for being persistent

Mercy Mercy Me

Marvin Gaye's ''I Want You'' was from 1976, was it not?

The year listed here is the year it was a hit (not the year it was released). Since it was a hit in 1976 for 7 of the 8 charts it is in we count it as a 1976 song.

There are two reasons we list songs that way, first because it makes more sense to match the song with the year that "most people" became aware of it. Secondly given the data we have access to (which does not include long lists of when songs were actually released) it would be hard to do anything else.

Jeremiah was a bullfrog

Where is "Jeremiah was a bullfrog"?

The song "Joy to the World" by Three Dog Night is popularly (but incorrectly) known as "Jeremiah was a bullfrog" from its first three words
